Thinkery is Austin’s home for “why” and “how.” A place where science and families play side by side. Where people connect with ideas by doing, making and experiencing. It’s a foundry for a new generation of innovators and creative problem solvers. And it’s a heck of a good time. Thinkery provides highly interactive and quality educational programs for children and their families. The programs are grouped by age; including adults-only and educator specific programming.
Bringing fun Robotics, Engineering and STEAM inspired programs to a school near you! Children are guided by instructors through an interactive lesson followed by a fun build using LEGO® bricks. We offer Engineering, Robotics, Animation and many other STEAM inspired programs. Snapology classes are held onsite at your child’s school and begin immediately after school ends. Programs last from 1- 3 hours (depending on the school).
